Re: Seeking Smoother Braille Book Reading Experience


I didn’t think it was quiet. I had read somewhere that it made a lot of noise. I work in radio broadcasting and audio production. That would not be a good display for my particular line of work. I’ve read somewhere that the mantis is very quiet. It’s too bad that the orbit is so noisy. When you are around other people, you don’t necessarily want a display that’s going to be a distraction to them. Why draw attention to yourself if you don’t need to do so?

Thanks for the info,

No it is not. It makes a telegraph sound or like a type writer sound. If you want quiet,  brailliant or focuss display. I do not think the hense displays make any noise either. Heather

Is the Orbit a quiet display?

I use an orbit reader20 and love it. The book reading experience is very smooth after I turn filter dot7, on, wrapping, on, split words, off, set auto-scroll, 2 or 3 seconds. hit space to start or stop auto-scrolling.
